's very, very hard for romney. but i'm also reminded of the ryan soup kitchen fiasco a few weeks ago where again they were caught staging kind of fake giving where romney was supposed cleaning pots that had already been washed. i think there's sort of -- >> there was a lot of back and forth over precisely whether the dishes were clean or dirty which gives you a sense of how much they are micro managing. >> that's right. >> you get in this situation where you get the reverse effect where your attitude towards the pao are and those in need really starts to look artificial. and that's different than just campaigning. that's just a callousness. and also dovetails with romney's position on fema during the primaries where you're saying we don't need this, private companies can do it, states can do it. if you're out there saying -- giving the impression people handing out soup cans can solve a problem of this magnitude that's also a problem for you as well. >> i think that's right. underscores the point that a big storm actually requires some big government. you know, i think that's a very diffic
three days, will head to ohio, new hampshire, colorado, iowa, virginia, and pennsylvania. paul ryan will also be in pennsylvania on sunday trying to bring the state back into play before tuesday. meanwhile, president obama will spend the entire day today in ohio. he'll hit wisconsin, iowa, virginia, new hampshire, florida and colorado in the coming days. the president will close his campaign by calling on two of his most bold-faced surrogates, jay-z and bruce springsteen. they will perform in ohio on monday. but if team o has the boss to close the deal romney land has meat loaf and ricky skaggs. >> i want to thank ricky skrags -- skrugs rather -- skrags, can't get it right -- for entertaining. >> ricky skaggs. batting for the president, sober minded political figures including colin powell and michael bloomberg and for romney, sober minded political figures including the donald. that said both candidates have tinseltown on their side. for obama, eva longoria, george clooney, sarah jessica parker. and for mitt romney, clint eastwood and mr. burns. >> mitt strapped his mutt to the roo
it ryan wanted to make, no, you have to come to us after the storm hits to get the money. and this way they had the money, they had resources, able to put in place beforehand and that makes a tremendous difference in this situation. >> we will be talking about how the president has made reform, structural reforms to fema after the break. coming up, president obama, governor chris christie bro hug it out, official term, after the new jersey storm tour. how that is romney surrogacy working out? it's a new day. if you're a man with low testosterone, you should know that axiron is here. the only underarm treatment for low t. that's right, the one you apply to the underarm. axiron is not for use in women or anyone younger than 18. axiron can transfer to others through direct contact. women, especially those who are or who may become pregnant, and children should avoid contact where axiron is applied as unexpected signs of puberty in children or changes in body hair or increased acne in women may occur. report these signs and symptoms to your doctor if they occur. tell your doctor about all
christie that some top advisers believe that the governed had been offered the job. then he settled on ryan the day after returning. now look. i'm sure everybody in this campaign is going to have a story about how it all shook down. but the fact is, if they somehow alienated chris christie, perhaps that is some explanation independent of the fact that i think chris christie really believes in the job he has to do and showing leadership in a time of crisis. you got to think there were a lot of bear hugs given to the president while he was in new jersey touring the damage. and i don't begrudge him for doing that. but it had to make the romney team uncomfortable, especially at this point in time. >> no, absolutely. i think the problem is that we're seeing everyone start to sort of reorient towards the postmortem on this campaign. and i think that's a real problem. we've got, you know, chris christie actually just being the lead they're the people of new jersey elected him to be, and that's this sort of time bomb for the campaign. it's very strange. >> here is why the romney campaign in boston
events tonight. they say they are canceling all events scheduled for governor romney and congressman ryan on tuesday. joining us to talk about this, live from the white house, is nbc's chuck todd. chuck, we were a 're talking abg a candidate right now a week before election day and also not wanting to seem overtly political in a time of national crisis. your assessment of the situation? >> well, i'm not surprised that they went ahead and canceled it. what was he going to say? it was like the president this morning, be i was surprised when he went ahead and left last night from here to wake up in orlando and i think they realized they woke up in the morning going what is he going to say at this rally, at a campaign rally. are you going to go one of your rifts against the candidate. the same calculus was done by the romney folks. anything you say can and will be held against you in the court of ub lick opinion. better to in this case plead political, take the fifth, don't say anything, take two days off and crede the turf because the potential to step in it, to say something to look and act
which is his running mate paul ryan and house republican positions and those that say it's moral hazard to spend any money on federal disaster relief because we're borrow fromming our kids. if you want to give federal money to private contractors, we're fine with that. >> the remarks he made last year in the primary, he kouchds it in moral terms when nothing brings into sharp focus, more reality and our role as our brother's keeper as times like this. have to field those questions at this time. >> there are no fox holes and no anti-government conservatives in hurricanes. when the hurricane comes everyone wants big brother and help. because there is some problems only government has a scale to respond to and this is one of them. so i think the problem with taking that kind of position on fema some months ago is that sometimes you have hurricanes and the consequences become apparent. >> the question is, richard, there are only a handful of days remaining until november 6th. how does this get -- how much of this gets into the ground water? the romney statement on fema. of course the house
